On February 21, 2023, students at the high school will be participating in a survey given by Cherokee Nation Public Health. The survey is available for review under the YRBS Survey tab. This survey is completely anonymous and the information gathered will be used to develop programs that address health risk behaviors practiced by youth and will help develop programs in order to prevent such behaviors. A survey administrator from CN will administer the survey. It will take approximately 35 minutes for students to record their responses independently. A parental permission form will be given to each student to give a parent the opportunity to opt out if you do not want your child taking part in this survey. The form is to be completed only if you do not want your child to participate. Please remember, the survey is completely anonymous. If you have any questions pertaining to this survey, please contact Mrs. Keli Harrell at the HS office.

Parents, We have decided to provide an exciting incentive for students who have good attendance. From 1/3/23-4/28/23, every child who has perfect attendance for a week of school has their name placed in a drawing to win one of these new bicycles. The two bicycles with training wheels will be for pre-K through Kindergarten. The two larger bikes are for 1st-2nd grades. There will be 16 opportunities for our kiddos to have their name placed in the drawing. We understand that kids get sick, and we certainly do not expect parents to send their children to school if they are unwell. However, there are plenty of chances for our students to have their names placed in the drawing. The more times their names are entered, the better their chances of winning. Attendance is extremely important, especially at this crucial age level in education. Our kiddos are extremely excited about our bicycle giveaway and so are we!
Our High School band, cheer, and basketball teams visited the elementary this morning. Our kiddos always love it when our high school students drop by. If you want to see school spirit, come watch our elementary students. They love being a Ranger!

Today Mrs. Armer and Mrs. Colwell will be going over Oklahoma's Promise with all 8th grade students.

Oklahoma's Promise is a scholarship that pays for tuition to any college, technical or trade school in the state of Oklahoma and is first available to students during their 8th grade year. If any of our 8th grade parents have any questions, please reach out to Mrs. Armer and she will be more than happy to help you.
